Ford Motor Company is recalling certain 2021-2022 F-150 vehicles. Underbody heat and noise insulators may loosen and contact the aluminum driveshaft, which could damage the driveshaft and cause it to fracture.
A fractured driveshaft can cause a loss of drive power, or a loss of vehicle control if the driveshaft contacts the ground. Additionally, the unintended movement could occur while parked if the parking brake is not engaged. Any of these scenarios increase the risk of a crash.
The NHTSA campaign number is 22V623000.
The potential number of units affected is 58,203.
Dealers will inspect and repair the driveshaft, as necessary, and properly attach the underbody insulators, free of charge. Owner notification letters are expected to be mailed Sept. 5. Ford’s number for this recall is 22S53.
